168/365 CIT

 It took a few tries to get the boy to stand still for one photo with his mama. I wanted just one of us together in our camp uniforms. Can you believe that giant is my first born? He’s a counselor-in-training (CIT) this summer and having a blast… I’m so happy and proud. 

This is from our walk this evening. I’ve been enjoying the walks and so far have managed to make it three times a week which is a goal I set myself. One or both of the girls usually join me. Tonight, middle daughter walked with me and we managed to keep a good pace and made it in about 30 minutes. It’s usually a little slower with little one… But no matter how fast or slow we go, I feel the important thing is that I’m walking and enjoying myself. 

Sweet dreams!

167/365 Sweet Dreams


I had every intention of hopping on the elliptical for 20 minutes tonight but then little one fell asleep on me and I decided tomorrow is another day. She will not fall asleep on me or near me forever, so I’m enjoying these moments while they last! 

Sweet dreams everyone!

162/365 – 166/365

Starting in the upper right corner and going clock-wise…

Thursday’s camp field trip took us to Blowing Rocks Preserve, a beautiful beach with natural rock formations that make for great exploring. 

Friday found me home taking care of a sick little one. She had woken up in the middle of the night and wouldn’t go back to sleep until she was safely tucked into our bed. Once morning came she proceeded to upchuck anything and everything in her tummy… For the next day and night. 

Saturday things were better and after a morning and afternoon of resting, we were able to grab some dinner out and see a pretty sunset on the way home. 

Sunday was spent running errands and making sure middle’s birthday wishlist was whittled down a bit. I also found some new kicks and forgot how nice that first walk feels.

And today, well, today, our middle daughter turned 12. She was a very happy camper and loves her new Polaroid camera, among some other presents. 

Hope all is well with you guys!

xoxo, Susi
